Playdough mats are one of our favorite activities in this house. My youngest daughter is struggling with her letters and remember their names, but does well with writing the letters, so we use playdough mats to help reinforce her learning. She is also totally in love with whales and so these are a perfect match for her right now.
I recommend printing each of these pages (on cardstock preferably, but printer paper will work too) and then laminating them for longevity. The nice thing about these mats is that they really are multi-purpose.
You can use them with playdough for younger kids and then graduate to wipe-off markers as they get more fine motor skills. You can also use a variety of objects to place in the little boxes to help kids with their counting. My girls also love to use pom-poms to count.
Included in this set:
- 4 Letter Playdough Mats
- 1-10 Number Playdough Mats

If you’re looking for some great readers to use while learning about whales, check out these great titles. Many are probably available at your local library, or you could get a Kindle version for most of them on Amazon. I love using my Kindle Reader app to read with my kids. I have so many titles at the tip of my fingers in just minutes!
